Sandwich Monday: The Van Engelenfrozen

Filed by KOSU News in Art & Life.
August 6, 2012

It’s our intern MacKenzie Van Engelenhoven’s last week, and she asked if she could bring in the sandwich on her final Sandwich Monday. We said “of course,” because the only thing we love more than sandwiches is having the intern do things we should be doing ourselves.

It’s an old Van Engelenhoven family recipe: Make cookies, bake them only four minutes, and freeze them. This maximizes the cookie-dough-ness when you make ice cream sandwiches out of them.

Mike: It’s like cookie dough ice cream, reversed. Genius.

Ian: Oh, sure, when MacKenzie’s mom undercooks something, it’s brilliant. But when I undercook something, everyone gets salmonella.

Eva: This half-dough, half-baked cookie is ideal for the baker who’s half-impatient. Or half-depressed.

Peter: It really is just a small step away from eating sticks of butter over the sink.

MacKenzie: Sticks of butter actually have about the same nutritional value, but the cookies also have chocolate.

Ian: If President Obama was here I bet he’d eat the ice cream part with a spoon.

Peter: If Michelle was here she’d weep for us.

Robert: I never realized how much my ice cream needed an exoskeleton.

Peter: I just went back to my desk, and the Olympic feed is showing enormous men competing to see how far they can throw these very sandwiches.

Ian: These frozen cookies are tough.

Peter: Yeah, now I know what rats feel like chewing through a wall. Hard work, but delicious.

MacKenzie: “Van Engelenhoven” is actually Dutch for “jaws of steel.”

[The verdict: Delicious. MacKenzie has been a great intern, and in no ways a slow learner, so it is weird that in her many weeks here, she has failed to pick up on the fact Sandwich Mondays are supposed to be disgusting.] [Copyright 2012 National Public Radio]
